Our Next Event

Dinner at the Imperial Hotel, Torquay

Followed by a talk from Dr Peter Moore

Thursday 24th January 2019

Sex was not invented in the 1960's

Is there any celebrity from the 1960s not being investigated for some dodgy sexual behaviour?

According to the popular press the situation is getting worse. Does today’s western world make Sodom and Gomorrah look like cbeebies?

Peter Moore was a GP and forensic medical examiner for thirty years and for ten years the clinical consultant to Devon and Cornwall Police.

He has researched the long and controversial history of the law surrounding dubious sexual practices and discovered that over the centuries the laws, verdicts and rulings varied from the unbelievable to the bizarre.

Despite today’s Harvey Weinstein and #metoo the past was not always a golden era.
This is a joint meeting with the Devon and Somerset Law Society
